Oh to be a little girl again! The #ViandVa dolls are a recently launched line of adorable Latino culture inspired dolls that help girls honor and embrace their heritage. These little adolescent muñecas focus on both family and culture and are available exclusively at Target. They are not just friends, but sisters and cousins. Our #LatinaBloggers were recently introduced to Viviana, Valentina, Roxxi and Felicia and shared their experiences with us.
"But how's this for cute? There is a new line of dolls that embraces Latinos and their (our) sense of family and friendship. But that's not the only thing the Vi and Va dolls embrace. They were created for Latino kids to embrace their personalities, goals, and even flaws. Love that."
"My little friend AnaKaren, she was so happy when she knew about the new Vi & Va Dolls. She got all excited and want it to play with them right away."
"Que maravilla es poder pasar tiempo en familia disfrutando del juego. Hace unos días Elena cumplió sus cuatro años de edad y se nos ocurrió realizar una pequeña “fiesta de muñecas” donde Vi and Va nos acompañaron al festejo."
"My cousins and I, like so many young girls, let our imaginations run wild with our dolls. We turned shoeboxes into doll cars, we turned bookshelves into apartments, we made slips of paper into doll books. Taking some inspiration from each doll’s own personality and a little child-like ingenuity, I thought of a few fun ways girls can play using the dolls, their big personalities and items around my home."
"Maya picked her favorite right away, she picked Felicia, she is an artist. The first thing Maya asked me was: Why is her name in Spanish?"
